To eat/to speak

Nor soul helps flesh more, now, than flesh helps soul

 — Robert Browning, “Rabbi Ben Ezra”

To eat and to be eaten – this is the operational model of bodies, the type of their mixture in depth, their action and passion, and the way in which they coexist with one another. (…)

What is more serious: to speak of food or to eat words?

– Gilles Deleuze, The Logic of Sense

From the banal and the trivial, to life-long intimate secrets, the artist is sharing her secrets with you. This confessional list, written one by one onto Matzo bread is to be shared amongst you, the audience. Matzo bread is traditional unleavened Jewish bread, traditionally eaten at Passover to commemorate how fast the Jews had to flee Egypt. My secrets are yours to be consumed, interiorised, processed, discarded and then forgiven – or forgotten.

I took part in this event  at JW3 in North London last Sunday. You can find out more about the other artists & JW3 here: https://www.jw3.org.uk/event/secret-confessions?pid=3590
